Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem
As Salaamu ‘Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuh
I recently dreamt of my mother telling me to recite Surah Qahir as it creates spiritual unveiling and raises one’s spiritual levels. I then woke up and fell asleep again and this time I dreamt of one of the Naqshbandi Shuyukh in my area and he explained to me that Surah Qahir is the name given to a group of 5 powerful surahs : Surah Taha, Surah Rahmaan, Surah Tawbah and I can’t remember the other two surahs. He also gave me some verses which I don’t remember now. A voice in the dream also said that Surah Qahir are those surahs which describe the warriors and their lives and daily routines.
I would like to know the meaning of this dream and the secrets of the mentioned surahs and if anything more is known of “Surah Qahir”
The beautiful Divine Name of al-Qahir occurs in Surat al-An`am twice (6:18, 6:61) and once in Surat al-A`raf (7:127) and these two are therefore the Suras of al-Qahir, and Allah knows best. Its meaning is related to the beautiful Name al-Qahhar, which is an emphatic form of al-Qahir denoting repetition and intensiveness, both of them close to al-Jabbar. See Mawlana’s April 29, 2011 suhba on those Names and meanings.
